In an unforeseen turn of events, hacker Pwn20wnd released v3.5.0 of the unc0ver jailbreak tool to the general public Sunday morning with official support for iOS 12.4, the latest available firmware release from Apple with support for Apple Card.
Update: iOS 12.4.1 is now available as of Monday, August 26th, and this update patches the exploit for iOS 12.4
Pwn20wnd announced the update just a few minutes ago via Twitter:
Jailbreakers haven’t even been able to blink their eyes lately without some sort of news regarding exploit or jailbreak tool updates, and as it would seem, there’s no sign that this will be slowing down anytime soon.
While the bulk of this news has dealt with adding support for newer firmware versions by way of updated and more efficient exploits, hacker and rootless JB 3.0 developer Jake James shook things up a bit this morning when he released updated versions of his Sock Port and Sock Port 2 tfp0 exploits with support for 64-bit devices running iOS 10.0-10.3.3:
We can almost always count on the jailbreak community to have something interesting going on during the week, and today is no different. Pwn20wnd released an updated version of the iOS 11.0-12.2-centric unc0ver jailbreak tool on Monday, officially bringing it up to version 3.3.8.
Pwn20wnd announced the update just this morning via Twitter, noting that it would implement an updated iteration of Jake James’ Sock Port exploit:
If you’ve been paying attention to the slew of jailbreak tool updates in the last couple of weeks, then Jake James’ Sock Port exploit has undoubtedly caught your attention. Pwn20wnd’s unc0ver jailbreak tool for iOS 11.0-12.2 was the first to implement it, but it could only jailbreak A9-A11 devices running iOS 11.0-12.1.4 at the time.
Just this morning, James shared an exciting announcement on Twitter regarding the Sock Port exploit, and as it would appear, oodles of modifications and refinements throughout the past week have made it compatible with all devices running iOS 11.0-12.2, including the A12(X) variety:
Hot off the heels of the release of unc0ver v3.3.6, Pwn20wnd just released another update for unc0ver this evening, this time bringing the jailbreak tool up to version 3.3.7.
Pwn20wnd announced unc0ver v3.3.7 via Twitter just a few minutes ago, noting that it would make the Sock Port exploit a lot more reliable on 4K devices:
Pwn20wnd released unc0ver versions 3.3.4 and 3.3.5 just this morning with support for Jake James’ Sock Port exploit, which can be used to jailbreak A7-A9(X) devices running iOS 11.0-12.1.4. But as it would seem, these releases weren’t bug-free, prompting Pwn20wnd to update unc0ver once again this afternoon to version 3.3.6.
Pwn20wnd announced the release of unc0ver v3.3.6 via Twitter not long ago, noting that it would resolve issues with the Sock Port exploit failing to jailbreak specific 4K devices:
Pwn20wnd released two consecutive updates for the unc0ver jailbreak tool on Friday, with the first being unc0ver v3.3.4 and the second being unc0ver v3.3.5.
The hacker announced the two updated versions of unc0ver just this morning via Twitter, noting that they would add support for Jake James’ Sock Port exploit for iOS 11.0-12.1.4 on A7-A9(X) devices and improve the reliability of other exploits:
